A HUGE surprise, I was able to see one of my teammates from Aqua the Great 2010, when I did StudentLife for a summer. Meet Daniel, he was a child sponsored through Compassion International (his story is incredible) and because of one family sponsoring him as a child he's been able to grow into such an incredible man and he's now in Chicago studying to become a minister...and his plan?

ps: I promise our love story will continue again soon!
